Bike won't start
Thursday evening as I rode home my bike started hesitating and stumbling. I headed for the shoulder and came to a stop. As I rolled to a stop, the bike died. I tried to start it, but nothing. Turned the key off, waited a few seconds and tried again. When I turned the key on the trip meter had reset to zero. Bike never would restart. I'm thinking it's the battery because it has given me problems before.......
Yesterday, I went out and bought a new battery. Bike still wouldn't start. I checked the battery and it was reading a bit low on the volts so I let it charge up over night.......
This morning I go out and the bike still won't start! I swapped batteries with my cousin's bike (YZF600R). My battery will start his bike, but his will not start mine. I completely removed my battery, and hooked my bike up to my truck via jumper cables. Still won't start.
I can hear the pump kick on when I turn the key, everything seems to be in order. I've checked what fuses I can find. The bike will crank over, but it's slow and labored. Doesn't matter which battery source I use. Cranks the same no matter what. Bike has run like a champ till now.
